In today’s green-obsessed age, navigating the world of government regulations and environmental standards is a full-time job — literally. As companies aim to be more environmentally friendly, they are increasingly looking for employees who have a knowledge of carbon accounting, corporate social responsibility and lean manufacturing techniques. In fact, Adam Zak, an executive recruiter, told The New York Times in August that demand for workers with sustainability-related job skills is “through the roof.” He estimates a 40% increase in the number of companies looking for sustainability professionals just in the past year. One such company is Coca-Cola, which appointed a new Chief Sustainability Officer in May and created an office of sustainability that, according to the Wall Street Journal, will oversee the company’s recycling, water management and climate protection. Look for other companies to follow suit, as any large-scale institution that has a lot of facilities to maintain will need to be thinking even more about sustainability in the future.
That is so cool that there are jobs where they do underwater welding. This is something that I didn't even know existed in the first place. That is really cool that you can do underwater welding. Wow, really think about that for a second. Welding underwater is way cool and takes great skill to do.
I didn't even know that you could weld underwater. I would imagine that you would need a lot of special tools to make this work the right way. I think it would be interesting to talk to people that do that for a living and see what kind of experiences they've had. I'm sure it's a very interesting job to do. I'll definitely have to do some more research about it.
